Property Description

Experience the real Australia at Gladstone backpackers! Located off the beaten path midway between Rainbow Beach and Airlie Beach, Gladstone offers the unique blend of country, coast, entertainment, and shopping. We are the perfect place to take a travel break or go adventuring like a true local to one of the many hidden beaches off the Southern Great Barrier Reef. Relax by the pool or play a game of darts, billiards or Jenga. Check out our activities board packed with weekly events such as Saturday parties and Sunday barbeques where you can become part of the Gladstone family! There is never a dull moment here thanks to the hostels’ Adventure Shuttle service that offers mountain climbing, kayaking, and fishing tours all at backpacker friendly prices.

Enjoy our newly renovated facilities such as a fully stocked kitchen and rooms with individual fans. The common area features a plasma screen TV where you can watch while hanging out with our friendly pet turtle, fish, mouse, and snake.

Charlies Bar is the main meeting place, and where all the action starts. From Tumeric Lattes for breakfast, local craft beer on taps to Martinis and Mojitos as the sun sets. Meet your fellow guests and book your next adventure!

We offer FREE: Wi-Fi, breakfast, push bike hire, kayak hire, fishing gear hire, linen and towels, and endless love from our onsite dog Charlie

Gladstone is an odd stop of spot so the bar is a little lower for the hostel. For 20 dollars I think it was a fair deal. The rooms are not air conditioned and the property is definitely run down. There’s a family vibe to it. Not many solo backpackers and not much to do. The bar is attached to the hostel so keep that in mind if you are booking Friday or Saturday night. (There was a metal concert the night I arrived). But everyone was kind and it is a unique experience to the traditional AU trip!
